“Twilight” Producers Thought Robert Pattinson Was Too Fugly To Be A Vampire

It’s hard to imagine Robert Pattinson as anything but a total stud who makes us cream our panties. But lo and behold, when director Catherine Hardwicke presented her casting choice to Twilight‘s producers, those goons weren’t sure this vampiric hunk was Edward material! (By his own admission, RPatz had been “getting drunk for a year” before.) In an interview with Vanity Fair magazine, Hardwicke dished:

“[The producers] called me up and they literally said, ‘Catherine, do you think you can make this guy look good?’ So I said, ‘Here’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to get his hair back to a different color, do a different style. He would work with a trainer from now on. My cinematographer is great with lighting. He will study the cheekbones, and I promise you, we’ll make the guy look good.’”

Mission accomplished, indeed. After the jump, a smoldering Pattinson pic from Vanity Fair‘s dee-lish slideshow: Keep reading »

Your First Look At The “New Moon” Dude Fight


I resisted the “Twilight” craze for a while. Yes, I read the first book when my sister insisted and went to see the first movie, but I didn’t quite get what all the fuss was about. But after downloading the “New Moon” soundtrack and seeing oodles of “New Moon” previews that look, well, awesome, I’m kind of buying into the hype. A few minutes ago, I even found myself searching to see if any new trailers had been released. (Shh, don’t judge.) I was very pleased to find this one, which shows a fight scene between Edward and Jacob, with Jacob morphing into a wolf while Bella shrieks for him to stop. I guess hot guys fighting over you isn’t nearly as fun when they both have super strength. [People] Keep reading »

The Real Reason Men Have Always Hated Vampires

People magazine will release a “New Moon” special to the ravenous, adoring masses tomorrow. The tween girl set will dutifully purchase it, their mothers will surreptitiously steal it, and every dude will hate it. We’ve told you why chicks dig vampires and men don’t, while Esquire says it’s because the vamps are batting for the other team, but this doesn’t begin to cover it. Men, well, straight men have hated vampires since Bram Stoker — they’re hardwired for it. Keep reading »

“New Moon” Trailer Eclipses Our Expectations


Some people tuned in to the MTV Video Music Awards for the Michael Jackson tribute, to see Janet Jackson belt out “Scream.” Others tuned in for Beyoncé‘s “Single Ladies” dance number or to see Lady Gaga‘s insane wardrobe choices. But let’s face it: a high proportion of last night’s viewership tuned in to see MTV’s exclusive trailer for “New Moon,” which premiered halfway through the show. I’ve never been a “Twilight“-head, but now even I am seriously looking forward to November 20th. Keep reading »

A Bite Of The “New Moon” Soundtrack From Death Cab For Cutie

What could make Seth Cohen and every teenage girl in America squeal at equally loud decibel levels? The fact that a one-minute-and-45-second snippet of the first single from the “New Moon” soundtrack, Death Cab For Cutie’s “Meet Me On The Equinox,” is now available online. The movie doesn’t open until November 20, but if you pre-order the soundtrack now, you can be one of the first to download the whole song during the MTV Video Music Awards this weekend. Judging from the snippet, the song has the perfect wistful vampy vibe. We’re sure the rest of the soundtrack will be dope as well since it’s curated by music director Alexandra Patsavas, the lady who made “The O.C.” and “Twilight” soundtracks so addictive. Rumor has it that Thom Yorke and Kings of Leon will also have ditties on the album. [MTV] Keep reading »
